The enterprise resource planning software market has been growing at a very fast pace over the last few years and has been predicted to keep growing rapidly in the long term. The objective of the study is to investigate, analyze and systematize the factors that influence implementation of the ERP system in the construction company in Latvia and benefits and barriers of ERP system implementation. This paper argues that ERP systems are an increasingly important source of organizational change with major implications for the organization and management of work. Potential benefits include drastic declines in inventory, reduction in working capital, abundant information about what customer wants and needs, along with the ability to view and manage the extended enterprise of customers, suppliers, and alliances as an integrated whole. Common problems associated with cost over-runs, technical problems and inadequate training and documentation are well known. Less well known are the longer term and more profound implication for the organization work, the size and shape of the organization, the dynamic of power and control in the organization and the skills used by employees and needed by the organization post-ERP
